Hi,

I created a JDialog with a JComboBox
I add KeyListener support for the JComboBox but there is no response whenever I press any button on the keyboard.

Here is the code:








Any suggestion why it’s not responding ?


Thanks

Does the combo box have focus? It will need to be the focused item in order for it to process key input.

Also, depending on what you are trying to accomplish with a KeyListener on a JComboBox you might not be adding the listener to the appropriate element.

The idea is to enable the button when I type any key in the JComboBox

Then you probably need to assign the key listener to the editor of the JComboBox. In edit mode, a JComboBox uses a text field and that is the element you need to add the listener to since it is what gains focus.

like this : findBox.getEditor().addActionListener(this); ?
